Frontier Flight Attendants Picket Thursday in Push for Contract

DENVER — Frontier Airlines Flight Attendants, represented by the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA), protested at three major airports on Thursday, November 3, as they press to reach a contract.

“Frontier must invest in its people to ensure the future success of our airline. Customer service and safety start with flight attendants. We are committed to achieving an agreement which recognizes our contributions as aviation’s first responders that make Frontier Airlines a success,” said AFA President Angie Piller.

Negotiations began over a year ago. Frontier recently announced its plan to hire 800 flight attendants and 300 pilots by the end of next year in order to expand to new destinations. Even as the airline grows, the operation has been plagued by operational issues, stemming from its January 2015 decision to outsource thousands of jobs. The message is clear: Frontier must invest in its employees.
